The national group of experts “Strip Production” was transformed to “Steel Strip Society” on May 18, 1994 at the foundation meeting in the course of the 38th workshop at Žloukovice. Based on its own memorandum of association (Rule Book), it is a voluntary association of citizens and legal entities joined together in accordance with Law No. 83/90 Sb. In the initial meeting Executive Board was elected, Rule Book was accepted and other organizational issues were negotiated. It is considered very important that original principles and the mode of work were kept to.
